7THINGS is in close proximity to the event venue. BITZ can be reached from the hotel in approximately 2 minutes by foot. It is also convenient to public transport, and free parking is available. Wifi is also available free of charge. Note that breakfast at the hotel will not be included, as it will be provided on-site at the StartupWeekend Space event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You are welcome to use the hotel’s breakfast buffet, at an additional personal cost of 6.50€ per day.
We are organizing tours to the various aerospace facilities in Bremen on Friday April 10th. In order to secure a spot on this tour, latest date to register is 31 March 2015. This is due to security requirements of the facilities.

Krzysztof Kanawka comes from Poland, but during the last 10 years he has lived and studied in Germany, UK, France and Norway before coming back to Poland. After 11 years in academia he decided to move to the business sector in the space industry. The first company, called Kosmonauta.net, was started as a Ltd. entity in 2012. This company quickly found its niche in the engineering/business consulting field. The company has also been creating its own downstream applications, utilising data from satellite navigation and Earth Observation. In 2014 the company experienced a boost due to funds from an investment fund, as one of the first Polish commercial entities in the space sector. The company, now called Blue Dot Solutions Ltd., manages several European Space Agency and Horizon 2020 portfolios as well as portfolios for commercial partners.
